Wood nymphs

The newly op shopped dreamy 1970s handmade gown was begging for a romp in the forest...


and my darling Sammygirl was in town 
and is also partial to a romp...


So we romped. Quite magnificently. If I do say so.


We were so frickin whimsical, they had to invent a new word for it.





 


I wore: 
Baby pink polka dot concertina pleat handmade 1970s gown - Op shopped
Hair flower - Retail 

Sam wore: 
1970s gingham maxi - Op shopped 
Floral headpiece - Gift from Sassy Vamps
Fluffy pom pom flowers - taken from the garden of my current house sitting house

 Now, to find a boyfriend or two to take me to magnificent parties, where I might wear this treasure. Cheaper than therapy and much more fun. 

A wonderful start to the week. 
Thanks Sammygirl!

These are causing my heart to skip beats. You are straight out of a Brian Froud book! I love each and every one, you look like a 70's Goddess that everybody had a poster of on his wall, ok maybe not something tells me you would have to be naked to get on a boys wall. Sammy is gorgeous and I love the picture of here laying down. You are an amazing photographer! I wanna be your muse!
Loveyoumorethanfairys~

Love the photo of Sammygirl lying in the grasss, and the second one of you looks like a dream as re-enacted in a film about an enchanted lady.

Very immpressed.

Miss Maple said...

Oh I love your forest fairy games. I would like to dance with you in the spring forest instead of scratching the ice from my car and clear the snow. I love the third picture with the sun circles. Hugs from Miss Maple

pastcaring said...

Oh you gorgeous dryads, frolicking and cavorting in your fabulous frocks in the woods! That pink dress is a wonder, all those delicious candy-coloured little pleats. You are right it is a GOWN, not a mere dress! I love Sam's gingham too, and pic of her lying in the grass is beautiful. You take the BEST photos!
Oh I do want to romp with you. I don't think I can do whimsy but I can wear a maxi and I can romp really well!
Is it inappropriate to say if you're a nymph, then I'm a nymphomaniac? Probably. But I said it anyway!
LOVEY LOVE LOVE! xxxxx

FECK!!!!!!! Therapy can take a hike when there is a willing, able and glorious friend to romp about in the sunshine with, especially when there is a DIVOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON pink pleated maxi to flutter in! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!!!!! The peony headband looks lovely on Sammy, those flowers are huge aren't they?!!! AMAZING photography ... AGAIN!!!!!!!!!! xoxox

Fashionista said...

Your pink frock is THE BOMB. That would have to have been a bridesmaids frock. Sigh. Can you imagine the wedding frock? Sigh. If only the frocks could talk...

Fabulous post as usual.

Ahhhh, these photos are so gorgeous that my head almost exploded! The light is so beautiful, and of course, you ladies are stupendous.
